    The Book of Ecclesiastes from God's Word the Holy Bible, KJV Ecclesiastes Chapter 1 1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. 2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. 3 What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun? 4 One generation passeth away, and another. The Book of Ecclesiasticus is preceded by a prologue which professes to be the work of the Greek translator of the original Hebrew and the genuineness of which is undoubted. In this preface to his translation, the writer describes, among other things, his frame of mind in undertaking the hard task of rendering the Hebrew text into Greek.

This is the final episode of a three-part series on the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes, a truly unique book of the Bible. In this book the teachers shows how most of our daily time and energy is spent on things that are totally meaningless, which should motivate humility, integrity, and enjoyment of the simple things in life.
